News of Little Mix pregnancies were a big surprise to fans when two members of the band announced they were pregnant earlier this year.
It followed a period of big announcements for the British girlband Little Mix in general, as they had to say a sad permanent goodbye to bandmate Jesy Nelson in 2020 after she announced she was leaving the band for good after an extended break.
The band then released their first album as a threesome in 2021, but concerns started to grow over the group's future. There were even rumours of a Little Mix split (opens in new tab) after Perrie and Leigh-Anne announced exciting plans to start a family.
Little Mix pregnancies: Which Little Mix members are pregnant?
It's a double celebration for the best-selling British girl group with not one but TWO bandmates announced their pregnancies this year.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock is expecting (opens in new tab) her first child with her footballer fiancé Andre Grey. The couple shared their happy news with fans on Instagram, with Leigh-Anne uploading photos from her professional pregnancy shoot.
Six days later, fellow bandmate Perrie Edwards announced her pregnancy (opens in new tab). She shared the happy news to Instagram with some stunning black and white bump photos and pictures of the couple together.
On August 22 2021, Perrie and Alex welcomed their first child together (opens in new tab) after speculation from fans overnight that the singer had gone into labour.
She announced the birth on Instagram, writing below a set of black and white snaps of the baby, "Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21 ♥️".
Friends and fans of the couple offered their congratulations to the new parents with Leigh-Anne, who's due date is unknown, writing that she was "so proud" of her fellow bandmate.
"I love you so much 🥺 what an angel ❤️❤️😍😍," she said.
Leigh-Anne's sister, who also gave birth to her child earlier this week, wrote, "You did it girl 😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️".
Little Mix's third member Jade Thirwall was clearly delighted for her friends' pregnancies. She commented on Perrie's initial post announcing that she was pregnant, "Beaming for you both ♥️ I’m the luckiest auntie in the world! Love youuuuu x"
Meanwhile, former bandmate Jesy Nelson showed her support by liking both of the girls' pregnancy posts.
When is Perrie Edwards' baby due?
Perrie Edwards has now given birth to her first child with partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
She was assumed to be at least three months pregnant (if not more!) when the initial pregnancy announcement was made, meaning her baby would have been born before the end of the year.
No doubt the singer followed doctor advice and waited to share her baby news after the 12-week scan. This is when it is considered safe to announce a pregnancy, as midwives can check the baby is safe and well. 12 weeks is also when the risk of miscarriage (opens in new tab) greatly reduces.
Perrie did not previous say when her due date was has not said and even now, has not confirmed whether the couple have a baby boy or girl (opens in new tab).
Fellow pregnant Little Mix star Leigh-Anne shared how excited she was to have her friend pregnant at the same time as her.
"Arghhhhhhhh so so so happy for you both," she commented on Perrie's instagram post. "And so happy we get to go on this journey together! Love you so much".
When is Leigh-Anne Pinnock's baby due?
Like Perrie, it is thought that Leigh-Anne Pinnock's baby is due this year and will be born in autumn/winter 2021.
This is based on the assumption that Leigh-Anne was at least 12 weeks pregnant (opens in new tab) upon her announcement. Though from the size of her bump it looks like she may actually be further along than this.
Leigh-Anne has not confirmed her baby's due date or revealed her baby's gender.
Leigh-Anne debuted her bump in a dramatic green satin co-ord outfit. She told fans how she and her partner had "dreamed about this moment for so long" and were looking forward to meeting their new addition.
How old is Perrie Edwards and who is her partner, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain?
Perrie Edwards is 28-years-old, following her birthday on July 10 this year.
The Little Mix vocalist has been dating her partner Alex Oxlade Chamberlain for just under five years, with the couple getting together in November 2016. However, they didn't make their relationship public until early 2017.
Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is a successful Premier League footballer who plays for Liverpool FC. He has also played for England in the national football team, first appearing on the squad in 2012 and qualifying again in 2014. He was sadly left out of the 2018 World Cup line-up because of an injury.
It seems Alex is an excited but nervous dad-to-be. He jokingly commented on Perrie's Instagram post: "Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies?" Before adding: "So grateful and excited to become a dad. Bring on the sleepless nights."
How old is Leigh-Anne Pinnock and who is her fiancé, Andre Grey?
Leigh-Anne Pinnock is 29-years-old and was born on 4 October 1991.
